Trick or Treat

Here another card to inspire you for Halloween.
This time I used Michael Strongs
Halloween Silhouettes.
You can find the stamps HERE.

As this card has a completely different
background as yesterday, i will share again
how i made this background with you.
First you cut a circle with a large punch
or use a spellbinder. Save the paper
you cut it from, you need it too.
I used 3 different colors of orange ink
and a sponge.

Start with the lightest color close to the circle
and make it darker towards the outside.

When finished with orange, take yellow ink
and the piece of paper you cut the circle from
to color the circle on the inside.

To make the earth under the moon use some
post it paper that you tear. You can either color
all of it black in one go, or

move the paper several times to have mire structure.
It is an old trick, but much loved.

Here you see the finished background before
the cat is stamped on the moon.

The bats are cut out with the
Halloween Confetti dies
and the sentiment on the card
is from Tim Holtz Simple Sayings set.

Hope I have given you some inspiration!

Have a creative day!
